It looks almost festive, excited, a huge procession, colorful and lively in its way: parents and brothers and friends, even grandparents, bringing their loved ones to the event of the season, she thinks, a closing down sale and in every car there is a young lad, the first fruits, a spring carnival with a human sacrifice at the end. And what about you, she digs at herself, look at you, how pretty and put together you are to bring your son, almost your only one, whom you loved so much, with Ishmael driving you in his taxi. David Grossman, Until the End of the Land.
